Welcome to our new series highlighting recent graduates who are surviving (and even thriving!) out in the “real world.” Starting in January 2012, 3CE will periodically highlight recent grads who have found a fulfilling job or are enrolled in an engaging graduate study program.
Do you know a recent graduate who has landed a job they love or has been accepted into their dream graduate program? Perhaps you are a recent grad with a story to share. We want to hear about it! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on being a featured recent graduate on the 3CE website.
